MAGNIFICAT

Prière à la très sainte Vierge/ Prayer to the Holy Virgin



















MAGNIFICAT (français)

Mon âme exalte le Seigneur,
mon esprit exulte en Dieu mon Sauveur.

Il s'est penché sur son humble servante ;
désormais tous les âges me diront bienheureuse.

Le Puissant fit pour moi des merveilles ;
Saint est son nom !

Son amour s'étend d'âge en âge sur ceux qui le craignent.

Déployant la force de son bras,
il disperse les superbes.

Il renverse les puissants de leurs trônes,
il élève les humbles.

Il comble de bien les affamés,
renvoie les riches les mains vides.

Il relève Israël son serviteur,
il se souvient de son amour,

de la promesse faite à nos pères,
en faveur d'Abraham et de sa race à jamais.


MAGNIFICAT (English)

My soul doth magnify the Lord.
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name.

And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.

He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble.
He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.

He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy:
As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever.

MAGNIFICAT (Latin)

Magnificat anima mea Dominum,
et exsultavit spiritus meus in Deo salvatore meo,
quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae.

Ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes,
quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est,
et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericordia eius in progenies et progenies
timentibus eum.

Fecit potentiam in brachio suo,
dispersit superbos mente cordis sui;
deposuit potentes de sede
et exaltavit humiles;
esurientes implevit bonis
et divites dimisit inanes.

Suscepit Israel puerum suum,
recordatus misericordiae,
sicut locutus est ad patres nostros,
Abraham et semini eius in saecula.
